Creativity Prompt: Lines

Create a drawing that uses only lines for texture and interest.

Supply list:

  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Markers
  • Your imagination

Tips: Draw the basic shapes of your image with a pencil first. This helps in getting the basics on the paper before you use markers to make permanent lines.

Techniques: To create shading, draw lines in one direction, then add another set of lines that cross the first set at a different angle. This will create darkness without solid color.

Next Step: If you want to take this project to the next step, create another drawing using only straight lines. Which is easier straight-line drawing or curved line drawing?
